I was a neighbor of Frank during the 1960's and early '70s. He was a good neighbor, a kind individual and always had a lot of interesting stories to share.
Our family was blessed to have lived across the street from the Elam's for many years in Meadowcreek Village. My mother, Anne Meyer, still lives there. We are so sorry that we were unable to visit with Frank after he moved back into his home. I saw him a few times sitting in his front yard talking on the phone and didn't want to interrupt. Mr. Elam was a brilliant, interesting man and a wonderful neighbor to the Garlin and Anne Meyer family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Frank was a kind and intelligent man. When he would come by the office (for several years we worked in two different branches of the same engineering division) he had a ready smile and the appearance that he understood the world around him. I am glad to have known Frank. My condolences to his family.
Frank Elam was my Moms cousin and I worked in the same building as him at the NASA, Johnson Space Center Building 16 until he retired in 1994. He helped me with a law issue I had a couple of times. Always had great stories to tell and a wealth of History behind those glasses. A brilliant man.
